Algae blooms, HABs and toxic algae are affecting waterways and waterbodies in 50 states and globally. They affect fishing, swimming, tourism, real estate values and are a health risk to humans and animals. They are an increasing threat to lakes, reservoirs and drinking water. They thrive in nitrogen and phosphorus-rich environments. As they increase every year, chronic toxins are produced causing lake and beach closures and associated degradation of property values. Airborne toxins can be detected for up to a mile away from impacted water bodies affecting coastal and golf communities.
After decades of research, testing and monitoring, the National Algae Association receives requests from state representatives, counties, algae task forces, lake, bay, coastal management and homeowner’s associations looking for real solutions. They are only interested in technologies proven outside the lab, scalable and economically feasible claiming decades of research, testing and monitoring alone have not fixed any of these devastating water quality problems.
Algae blooms and HAB problems are devastating canals, lakes, marinas, coastlines and reservoirs. Join nutrient stewardship farmers and algae bloom/remediation technologies as they combat the worsening nutrient runoff in collaboration at farm-edges.
